Both the glass front and the glass back of the Mix Plus are made Corning Gorilla Glass, in an unspecified version.

Only below the display is the usual frame section containing the front camera and the proximity sensor. VKWorld speaks of one Screen-to-body ratio from 90%. In fact, this value is only 79%, which can be understood with some math based on the case size of 143 × 74 × 7.9 mm and the display diagonal.
